In Jonathan Demme’s explosive directorial debut, white hot desires melt cold prison steel! Sentenced to a women’s penitentiary, Jacqueline (Erica Gavin) and her cell sisters must fight against ruthless fellow inmates while battling a brutal, wheelchair bound warden-from-hell (Barbara Steele). Stacked with a killer cast of drive-in stars such as Juanita Brown, Roberta Collins, and Rainbeaux Smith, cinematographer Tak Fujimoto behind the camera, and the Velvet Underground’s John Cale providing the score, Caged Heat is one of the crown jewels in Roger Corman’s New World library, a grindhouse great that delivers the goods on sex & violence, while simultaneously showcasing Demme’s subversive touch and energetic filmmaking talents.

“The US drive-in audience’s taste for renegade women has thrown up some pretty bizarre movies, but few more distinctive than Demme’s directorial debut. The density of invention and energy is enough to shame a dozen contemporary major studio movies.” – Time Out

Bruno Mattei’s notorious women-in-prison filth-fest sends the Black Emanuelle series to the slammer! When a young journalist (Laura Gemser) goes undercover in a women’s prison to expose the brutal truth behind bars, she’ll discover the depths of man’s graphic inhumanity as she’s tortured, beaten, and bitten by flesh-hungry rats. Caged Women is a grimy Euro sleazebomb from the Hell of the Living Dead director featuring a screenplay by Troll 2 legend Claudio Fragasso and an entertaining score by Luigi Ceccarelli.
